Help confirming ID of early Commando

Posted by robert_gehle at March 14. 2017

I have recently acquired what appears to be a 68' 69' 70 Commando roadster.  I think the frame is a 68'  126XXX.  The transmission a 69'  134XXX and the engine a 70'  140XXX.

 

Doesn't have the additional frame cross member under the tank.

 

Any input would be appreciated.

 

Ps:  New Guy.

Hello Robert!

Look here:

So you have a "widowmaker" frame, better weld on the additional tube..

My May 70 Commando is number 137XXX, my friend´s  Oct 70 Commando is 140XXX. So your guessings are about right.

Greetings

Uli
